LIGHTNING REVIEW!! - The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

My pal Kevin won some tickets to an advance screening of Benjamin Button, David Finchers latest film! I love Finchers work, he's one of my favorite directors, and this time around he does not disappoint.

The movie is somewhere around 3 hours long, but I never noticed because I was too into the story. It completely sucked me in.

Everyone delivers a great performance, but what I found shocking was the slow physical transformation of each character. Its the brilliant combination of CG, makeup, and body doubles that firmly planted this fairy tale into reality. Brad Pitts makeup aside, Cate Blanchett looked amazing! I always thought she was pretty, but I'm pretty sure their makeup team had wizards and shamans on the crew to make her look 20 years old again.

David Fincher kicks a whole lot of ass, even though this film is a lot more subdued from his other work, (Fight Club, Seven, Zodiac), but its a nice change of material for the director.

I don't know if Button will win any oscars, but I think it deserves to be in the running.

Go see it, suckas!

super bot

So I've been working on this painting for awhile, Didn't turnout as well as I was hoping, but I learned a few things!!

Wall decal

I ordered this feather decal from Bliks, and just threw it up today!

It was pretty painless, even though there's about 40,000 little pieces.
Check out their site if you'd like a non-destructive piece of sticky art!

Today I will give my review of Disney's Bolt.

Judging by the early trailers for this flick, I really wasn't looking forward to seeing Bolt. But as the good reviews started coming in, it caught my attention.

Bolt is a pretty fun kids movie, There's some great laughs in there, some good tender moments that pluck the ol' heartstrings, but overall, I think it just felt too vanilla.

The animation was amazing, Right up there with Pixar and Blue Sky, the pigeons were very well done and they stole each scene they were in.

The design was a bit strange though. The characters were sooooo well done, very cartoony and dynamic. But the rest of the world was rendered very realisiticly, which made these cartoony characters stand out of place. I wish they took the principles of exaduration and distortion from the human characters, and implimented it to the rest of the world.

The story was, as I said earlier, nothing terribly new. It felt like it borrowed a bit from Toy Story, (Bolt is convinced he has superpowers, much like Buzz Lightyear believes he can fly, etc) but aside from a few nitpicks, this movie should please most people with a heart.
